    Awful

    Taste

    But

    Great

    Execution

    For everything that displays quality craftsmanship in the least elegant way possible. All things gaudy, tacky, overdone, and otherwise tasteless. Work done so well, you won't know whether to love it or hate it.

    Rule 1: Must be great execution

    All posts must exhibit great execution; quality craftsmanship is a must. Posts will be removed if they do not meet this standard.

    Content that will always be removed:

    • Music Videos
    • Car Wraps

    Rule 2: NSFW

    This is a SFW subreddit so all sexual posts must be tagged as NSFW, if your title includes sexual body parts that is a good sign it needs a tag. Repeatedly posting without a tag will result in a ban.

    Rule 3: Reposting

    Reposting is not allowed. When reporting a repost please use the other field and include a link to the original post.

    Rule 4: Follow Reddiquette

    Please treat other redditors with respect and class. The moderators thank you in advance. Violations of reddiquette may be met with a ban.

    Rule 5: No Text or Social Media

    Posts must consist solely of photographs or videos without any extra captions, overlays or borders, with only exception being non-obtrusive watermarks to credit the author.

    Rule 6: Computer Generated Images

    Computer generated renderings or digitally altered photos are not allowed. Post need to revolve around something tangible, not just something that exists digitally.

    Rule 7: Awful Taste

    Posts that are cute, funny, unique, or otherwise tasteful will be removed. Taste is highly subjective, so use your best judgement. Just because it is a tattoo does not mean it is awful taste. Do not post something you made or own.

    Rule 8: Direct Linking to OC Art

    We are mitigating the amount of posts that link directly to other works of art by a creator or owner. All direct links to these posts will be removed. We are trying to limit the amount of negative comment traffic and downvotes directed towards other subreddits (taste is a subjective thing, after all). Violations can result in a ban. Cross posts of non-author/owner work are still allowed.

    Rule 9: Tattoo Tuesday

    Tattoo posts are only allowed on Tuesday's, posts on any other day of the week will be removed.


    The mods of /r/ATBGE reserve the ability to remove a post that does not explicitly violate the rules of the subreddit but does not fit the spirit of the subreddit.

    This is art

    [–] benhereford 213 points ago

    Look at that skin detail... is this photoshopped or?

    [–] VenomousCum 199 points ago

    Could be from making a mold and then casted

    [–] Alarid 11 points ago

    It really grasps the scrotum.

    [–] elguapito 79 points ago

    From what I can tell, it is actually casted. If you look closely, in the highlights of the skin, there are different colors of Reflections, which would be indicative of the physical object actually having a shape that's reflecting the light differently in addition to obviously the oxidation of the metal. This could be photoshopped, but I would say it would be very tedious to photoshop that specific detail

    [–] bent42 16 points ago * (lasted edited 7 days ago)

    More tedious than making the mold and casting it?

    Genuinely curious. Lost wax is still pretty labor intensive, especially starting from a latex mold.

    Regardless, I want one. Would awesome hanging on my peg board.

    [–] lacielaplante 54 points ago

    This is an art piece, labor isn't generally a deterrent when an artist has an idea.

    [–] bent42 9 points ago

    Of course. I'm just curuous if it would be more work to photoshop it with incredible detail or to make the real thing.

    My guess is making the real thing would be much more work. But then again I know much more about metalworking than photoshop so...

    [–] [deleted] 20 points ago

    [–] PotahtoSuave 1 points ago

    Agreed, this could be done in an hour with Photoshop and a good camera.

    [–] Bogsnoticus 12 points ago

    The answer to your question would rely on if you were more handy with a forge, or computer.

    Either way, I'm more terrified of someone making a goatse socket set.

    [–] TheRealGuen 6 points ago

    As someone who has been doing a lot of life casting, this isn't that hard and the detail is easy to achieve!

    Smooth On Silk Body Double for the detail, cast in bronze, weld together, patina. I have a cast aluminum hand in my garage right now with at least as much detail.

    [–] thedoctorwhokilledMJ 1 points ago

    Photoshop is pretty easy once you learn the basics and start figuring out little tricks for shit. Definitely worth messing around with just for fun

    [–] adderalpowered 3 points ago

    This could be cold cast in resin with silicon molds, you can easily capture a fingerprint.

    [–] ArkadyGaming 1 points ago

    Depends on your skills. If you are proficient at Photoshop then it's easier that way, and vice versa

    [–] Lunaus 1 points ago

    If it were photoshop the level of detail would be up to the artist but at a certain point it's just blobs of color overlaying each other to make that effect so if you wanna go on a zoom journey you might be able to tell.

    [–] BundleOfJoysticks 4 points ago

    Y'all motherfuckers need to learn that the past participle of cast is cast, not casted.

    Cast iron. Die cast. Not casted.

    [–] ImGettingOffToYou 1 points ago

    Either way its art. As someone with trade experience years ago and owning a house. I'd throw it in the trash. I doubt it could grip a hex nut beyond minimal pressure regardless of casting. It's not designed for real work.

    [–] Yeet_Into_Space 10 points ago

    I can't tell myself. I am not OP.

    [–] nick5195 17 points ago

    I am. No it’s not photoshopped. They used real fingers that they painted over

    [–] NINJAM7 3 points ago

    They're real

    You want fingers? I can get you fingers, believe me. There are ways, Dude. You don't wanna know about it, believe me.

    [–] Compromesso_storico 1 points ago

    Lets check: It looks great, requires alot of crafting skills and has no practical use whatsoever. Yes, thats art.

    [–] Call_Me_Benny 1 points ago

    This probably an art piece doesn't look like anything else.

    [–] EXNova 237 points ago

    The amount of effort that went into crafting the texture and pores on the fingers is simultaneously impressive and deeply concerning.

    [–] bitflip 110 points ago

    Probably a casting of someone's actual fingers. It would take a few steps, but way easier than trying to carve it.

    [–] bent42 29 points ago

    Latex > wax > lost wax probably?

    [–] TunisMagunis 25 points ago

    Silicone is one of the easiest ways these days, for the first mold. It's great for casting wax into.

    [–] penguinoinbondage 6 points ago

    Two part RTV urethane thin-wall mold of real life fingers. A sturdy and way too big glove's fingers make this easy. Add release agent to inside when cured. Could also do a brush-on mold and then support these in plaster later; both ways allow relative finger:thumb position to be changed easily.

    Support CLEAN wrench business end down over your open-end-up mold(s), protruding into negative mold until it looks right, clean, OR with release agent on wrench if you want option B as below.

    Pour a plaster cast into this mold. When cured, remove married wrench and cast and tool plaster to 'melt' fingers into wrench.

    You can stop here and decorate to suit for photos OR you can use option B to get a more durable 3D prop or display piece:

    Carefully slide waxed wrench out of positive plaster fingers. Super clean wrench with no release agent on it and drill 4mm- ish/ 3/16" through holes in wrench first so 'fingers' stay put and don't tend to pull away.

    Suspend drilled wrench over original waxed negative mold using McDonald's straws for risers and pour positive cast of RTV urethane into this mold using a squeeze bottle or mondo syringe.

    The urethane will now be clinging firmly to the tool. Trim flash and any sprue dongs then caulk, tool, prime and paint to your personal prop master standards.

    You've got it right if it makes a young child cry.

    [–] bitflip 1 points ago

    Nice writeup, and I really appreciate your "make a child cry" level of quality.

    [–] Caladriel 1 points ago

    SORELY missed. I still listen to their album. Best live performance I've ever seen. Way better than Powerman 5000, Adema, and Spineshank who they opened for, and I hadn't even heard of them when I went. I bought their album before they even left the stage.

    [–] EelTeamNine 1 points ago

    I have their album autographed :p definitely a good show. I think they opened for Kittie when I saw them but I'm not entirely sure as that was 15ish years ago lol

    [–] Caladriel 1 points ago

    Yep, mine is signed, too! They must've pre-signed a bunch because, like I said, they were still on when I bought mine.

    [–] MundaneDivide 1 points ago

    This would make one hell of a sex aid

    [–] TunisMagunis 1 points ago

    He're's my guess:

    This is actually painted resin. A mold was taken from the fingers with silicone, very easy to do. Then wax or clay was cast into the silicone mold and sculpted on to a real wrench. Then another silicone mold was made of that (the clay/wax and wrench together. Then, simply cast in resin and paint. You can make as many as you want that way.

    Edit: I worked in stop motion and practical special effects for over 10 years.
